5th Grade STEM Camp

The Mt. Vernon School district is running a free Afterschool Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Camp for any and all 5th Graders enrolled in a Mt. Vernon School!

The STEM Camp will provide 5th graders with the opportunity to 1) practice the ‘Scientific Process’ through experimentation 2) hone their engineering skills by working in teams to solve real world problems, and 3) learn about Computer Science as well as new forms of Technology!


This year we will be promoting the importance of attendance. This is a goal shared district-wide. Attendance is one strategy recognized by the Mount Vernon School Board to achieve a 100% graduation rate at MVHS!  You will learn more about attendance as the year develops.
